Often times, it's a saying that's missing in our world today. That's not the case for one Reddit user who shared his surprise to thousands online.

Reddit user Wardo613 visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras, but during the trip he lost his wallet. That is, until a Louisiana state trooper found it.

"Lost my wallet in NOLA for Mardi Gras, got it back in the mail with this note from one of the kindest State Troopers. He personally paid to ship it and had all the money in it still," Wardo613 posted with a photo of his wallet and a note from the trooper.

The note from the state trooper, John Jett, includes an explanation of where the wallet was found and why the officer decided to mail it.

"I did go through your wallet in an effort to make sure the address on your DL was your correct address. Everything in your wallet is exactly as it was when I found it," Jett wrote.

Louisiana State Police officials shared the photo on their Facebook page.

Thousands have commented on Wardo613's Reddit post. In a comment, he said he plans to thank the officer by sending him a pizza.
